Photos: A peeping Marie

This picture was taken during the Fair trade parade in Paris. Once you have been in Paris for long, most of the parades may seem the same. It is the same performers over and over again. It was also a time when my creative energy was hitting the bottom levels. Even though I shot a few pictures, I didn't like any of them when I examined it inside the comfort of my home.

This one was different from the ones I had previously shot. She was holding a big banner and only a part of her face was visible. It gives the illusion of a person looking over a fence. Hence the caption of peeping Marie. In addition, the subject is only visible in a third of the full frame.

    1. For some of the shots, I ask permission. For others, I do not. The best approach is to ask permission before shooting. Most of the people have no qualms in posing for you. Some of the pictures are of such nature that it is difficult to ask permission. ;)
